What would you do if you lost an arm or a leg at 17? Truth is you and I have no idea, and should be grateful that we did not have to find out.

...then it will not be a struggle. The Atlanta market is suffering a bit from a lack of move-in ready "A" space. Consequently, several clients have become a bit frustrated that they have yet to find "the one". I recently sat down with a couple and talked about the frustration. I told them that wh...
